Karia and the Dodekanese, Vol. II, presents new research that highlights cultural interrelations and connectivity in the Southeast Aegean and western Asia Minor over a period of more than 700 years. Throughout antiquity, this region was a dynamic meeting place for eastern and western civilizations.

Modern geographical limitations have been influential on both archaeological investigations and how we approach cultural relations in the region. Comprehensive and valuable research has been carried out on many individual sites in Karia and the Dodekanese, but the results have rarely been brought together in an attempt to paint a larger picture of the culture of this region. In antiquity, the sea did not constitute an obstacle to interaction between societies and cultures, but was an effective means of communication for the exchange of goods, sculptural styles, architectural form and embellishment, education, and ideas. It is clear that close relations existed between the Dodekanese and western Asia Minor during the Classical period (Vol. I), but these relations were evidently further strengthened under the shifting political influences of the Hellenistic kings, the Roman Empire, and the cosmopolitan late antique period. The contributions in this volume comprise investigations on urbanism, architectural form and embellishment, sculpture, pottery, and epigraphy.

Birte Poulsen is Associate Professor at the Department of History and Classical Studies (Classical Archaeology), Aarhus University. She has been the head of the Danish Halikarnassos team since 2016. Her main research interests are art and archaeology of the imperial period and Late Antiquity with special reference to Asia Minor and Italy. Poul Pedersen is Professor Emeritus at the University of Southern Denmark. He started working in Halikarnassos in 1970 and was head of the Danish Halikarnassos team 1989-2015. His main interests are the topography of ancient Halikarnassos, the architecture of western Asia Minor and Greek Architecture and its impact on later times John Lund is a Senior Researcher in the Danish National Museum, who has studied the finds from Kristian Jeppesen's excavations at the Maussolleion of Halikarnassos intermittently since 1999. The wider implications - economic and otherwise - of Hellenistic and Roman ceramics from the Eastern Mediterranean are central to his research interests.
